RISING gymnastics star Aisling Williams is back in shape and aiming for the Commonwealth Games.
The 15-year-old from Neston has spent most of this year recovering from a knee injury but she is now well on the road to recovery.
'I spend about 26 hours a week training and I am very grateful to my school for all the support they give,' said the Neston High School pupil. 'I am now fully fit and aiming to compete for England in the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia next March.
'My ultimate goal is to represent Great Britain in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games in Beijing and London.'
Aisling recently revisited her old primary school, Woodfall Juniors in Neston, with former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies
The pair are members of McDonalds Team Sport and their visit was to educate children about the benefits of regular exercise.
A dedicated gymnast since the age of five, Aisling trained regularly at Neston Gym Club before moving on to the City of Liverpool club two years later.
She receives professional training from coach Amanda Kirby who, in two years, helped Aisling make the step up to become a member of the British national squad.
Since then the talented youngster has become one of Britain's top juniors and is expected to make the step up into the senior ranks next year.
